In Our Community

Souris Credit Union Ltd. is a locally owned, managed and directed full service financial institution. The Board, Management & Staff live and work in the area and understand its needs and demands, and make decisions that affect the community. You are an owner - and as an owner you have a say in the direction of your business. Because we are locally based and locally owned, Souris Credit Union is in a position, more than any other financial institution, to support our community through economic and social contributions. We did this in a variety of ways this past year. 

We donated prizes, cash, educational bursaries and other worthwhile items. Souris Credit Union also contributes in a more direct fashion by employing 13 full time staff.

Many local organizations and charities receive much needed financial and volunteer support from Souris Credit Union. We donate/raise funds for various causes such as Souris & Area Minor Hockey, Red Cross Water Safety Program, Golf for Wishes, Q.E.H. Foundation, Special Olympics and the Canadian Cancer Society. Souris Credit Union is an active participant in our schools, providing funds for music equipment, banners, lunch programs, sports uniforms, and drug awareness programs.

Souris Credit Union has had the honor to present bursaries to graduating students in the Souris area totalling to date $195,000.00. We wish the students well in their chosen field of study and hope that our contribution will help ease the financial burden of their continuing education.

Over the past 3 years Souris Credit Union has donated in excess of $3.5 million in dividends, and donations back to our community.
